We cordially invite you and your faculty members to join our four-part webinar series (via CISCO Webex) for the 6th Annual Public Policy Conference (APPC) Conference.

The APPC is the main and culminating activity of the Development Policy Research Month (DPRM) celebration held every September.  It aims to convene foreign and local experts, researchers, policymakers, and representatives from the government, private sector, and civil society to discuss topics related to the DPRM theme. This year’s DPRM theme is Bouncing Back Together: Innovating Governance for the New Normal”, or in Filipino, “Makabagong Pamamahala para sa Sama-samang Pagbangon sa New Normal” to highlight the importance of innovating governance across all sectors of society to steer the country toward renewed growth and dynamism.
